Oliver and the Night Giants
Night has settled in, but Oliver is having trouble falling asleep. He had a hard day. He had painted a picture of how he saw the world, but other children laughed at his picture and said it wasn’t how the world was. Strange shadows dance on the walls of Oliver’s room, and a deep voice says he needs Oliver’s help. Two other voices implore him to come away with them. There are three giants outside his window, and they tell Oliver they need his help. They tell him they walk the world at night to set things right. They need Oliver to help them because he has the heart of an artist, and he will notice what is missing. Oliver goes with the Night Giants and they work hard through the night to make the world right.
